While a lot has changed since the peak of the pandemic, the concept of work-from-home (WFH) has persisted until 2023. In fact, 40% of all U.S. employees work remotely at least once a week. But, this trend of remote work is becoming less prevalent as businesses progress past the pandemic-era.
Today, 72.5% of businesses have no remote work employees. Statistically, the percentage of people who primary WFH has shrunk to 12.7% down from 35% during the 2020 peak of the pandemic. These numbers can be further divided on a state level. Major states like Texas and California still have over 4000 remote work job postings.
But the continuation away from remote work begs the question, should companies keep work-from-home positions? Around 98% of people claim they want to work remotely at least some of the time. Furthermore, benefits can be seen for employees and employers alike. Employees can eliminate irritating commutes, save money on gas and lunch, and have much more flexibility in the job. Employers enjoy less absentee employees, lower employee turnover, and a significant boost in worker productivity.
Overall, remote work is a mutually beneficial way of doing business that corporations should be taking advantage of. With companies like Unrubble, companies can easily transition to remote work to capture the benefits of employees working from home.
